Uglier Than This Woman
It was pretty much everything that was advertised.
They hit, they forechecked, they battled.
And the Kings tried to as well.
Quick giving up 5 goals in 2 periods? About as rare as a Jamie Kompon designed power play goal. The Sharks also hit 3 posts. It could have been 8-3.
The Sharks just simply outworked the Kings in every department and the Kings had more turnovers than Charlie Sheen’s mattress.
There would be no miracle on Manchester tonight. No stunner at Staples. Okay, so they gave us a “Maybe?” A “One more?” A “I switched it to “Naked and Afraid”, what do you MEAN they scored 3 goals.”
I’m just glad there was a triple overtime game to watch and a Colorado comeback to at least keep me entertained.
I’m glad Muzzin scored. It still won’t make up for the boneheaded plays and dumb penalties to come.
I’m glad Voynov scored. It made watching the game a little more fun and I didn’t have to beat my children.
I’m glad Trevor Lewis scored. It still won’t make up for the additional two years of zzzzzzzz’s we’ll have to endure.
Doughty was rustier than Wall-E. (and was the ONLY player with a -2) I guess I can’t blame this one on Matt Greene, although I would like to.
The Kings were credited with 69 hits. SIXTY-NINE. Justin Williams had ZERO. Can you imagine if he had actually CHECKED someone? Even with his ascot? The Sharks might have been so shocked they would have given up the puck and the Kings would have scored their 4th goal. (Okay, as far fetched as the plot to Johnny Depp’s new movie, but what the hell.)
That other ex-Duck Brown didn’t “run” Quick, he checked Voynov who flew into Quick. Nolan or Clifford would have done the exact same thing. The fact that the Kings didn’t retaliate and send a message disturbs me like watching homeless people take a shit in the middle of the street. But what do I know? I’m just a fat guy on a couch.
What the hell is going on with all the scoring in the playoffs? I thought this was a 3-2 league?
